It's Valentines week and we're feeling the love in our offices. And guess what?! We found the UK's number one work couple right under our noses- we're proud to announce the winners are Becky and Jade, our very own ACS pair of wifeys! Let's ask our winning couple why they love ACS!
Becky - "ACS was a big career change for me after being tucked away in the back of a Next stock room for nearly 3 years... and it was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made! The first day I started I was sat next to Jade Hampson and here we are 6 years later and she's one of the most important people in my life. She's my personal stylist, makeup artist, agony aunt and nurse all rolled into one, honestly my life would fall apart without her.
Not only did I meet my wifey but I have learnt a lot about myself over the years, my confidence has grown, I push myself to the limits with my work and believe it or not dealing with customers every day has calmed me down a lot (shocking but true!). I get to live out my fancy dress passion quite often here to! ACS encourages you to be the best version of yourself that you can be. Add on top of that the fact that I have done a bungee jump, a free fall, abseil and dragon boat racing and you start to realise that this is not your normal office! That's only naming a few of the things I have done here."
Jade - "It's amazing that we are crowned the UK's number one work couple - we have just had a celebratory cuddle! Well deserved I think, we are the dream couple, always there to lend a hand an ear or a shoulder. She's the Batman to my Robin!" Read all about Jade, our employee of the year here
We're all quite a happy bunch of workers here and I think many would agree that we all love working at ACS and it's a pleasure to come to work. Don't believe me? Well let's hear it straight from the horses mouths/ some of our other ACS'ers!
"I love ACS because you are given endless opportunities to show your strengths. whether this is running the company, which I did last year or even managing the time and attendance which I do on a daily basis." The photo (left) is from when a customer sent us some cake as a thank you gift.
(pictured with Matthew) "I love ACS because it's a fun place to work and the dynamic office is an encouraging place for learning and achieving."
"I love ACS because the atmosphere is unlike anywhere else. Everyone always has a can do attitude which motivates you to want to do better."
"I love ACS because I go to work with a smile every day. The team I work with are like my family, we're really close and we often socialise together. Some of my best friends are here and there's always laughter in the air- I'm so glad I did my apprenticeship here." (Chloe,far right, and her team)
"I love ACS because it's such a fun place to work. Where else can you watch someone having their chest hair waxed for charity in the middle of the office? I met my girlfriend here so I have a lot to thank ACS for!" (Steve and Becky pictured left)
"I love ACS because they are always growing you as an individual. With all the training from our suppliers you are always developing as an individual. Meeting our suppliers gives you an idea of everyone in the industry which is a real eye opener."
"One of the reasons I love ACS is the fact that they took me out for a 5 year anniversary dinner for my 5 years of service and they bought me an engraved watch to mark the occasion- I've never felt so appreciated and worthy at any other company!" (Lauren is taking the photo)
"The reason I love ACS? It's got to be the people that make up our unique company! They're crazy, inspiring -a real collection of characters that all have one thing in common, a desire to succeed... and have fun doing it!" (Paul, 2nd left)
